fiber art

could I
too imagine the stars
as I rolled this
fiber form
in the palm
of my hand

more than just
black and white
she imagined
but a small piece
of the night

could she
too imagine
a piece of the universe
our own Earth

for us to hold
with both hands

to share
to shelter
to keep safe

ring less true

there's more to truth
than just right words,
and so much less
to lies.

yet, a lie
seems the stronger
of the two,

as truth so often dies.
when disbelief

can cloud the eyes,
there's little
we can do,
but hang on to some wispy hope

that the lie will ring less true.
